Disclosure of Financial Relationships to the Accredited Provider

Individuals need to disclose relationships with a commercial interest if both (a) the relationship is financial and occurred within the past 12 months and (b) the individual has the opportunity to affect the content of CME about the products or services of that commercial interest.


As described in Standard for Commercial Support 2: Resolution of Personal Conflicts of Interest, the ACCME requires CME providers to ensure that those in control of content disclose to the provider all relevant financial relationships. This policy provides additional guidance for complying with that requirement. It is specifically related to Standard for Commercial Support 2.1.
